Since 2009, The "Art of Investing" Discussion Group has met every Monday during the summer season at Chautauqua Institution. The group members, led by Dennis Galucki, a retired financial advisor, are encouraged to share their insights and personal experience with investing.
Galucki's twin investment rules and ideas have provided the basis for much of the discussion since 2009:
First, know what you own and why you own it;
Second, appreciate the disciplines of balance and performance measurement.
In 2015 "Art of Investing: Nine Elements of Investment Literacy" will be a weekly focus for the Nine Week Chautauqua Season:
WEEK 1 - "Know Thyself"
WEEK 2 - Investment Goals
WEEK 3 - Risk & Reward
WEEK 4 - Stocks & Bonds
WEEK 5 - Portfolio Design
WEEK 6 - Stock Selection
WEEK 7 - Overweight & Underweight
WEEK 8 - "Solution-based Investing"
WEEK 9 - Performance Measurement
Attendees and audio listeners are encouraged to consult their own investment advisors and not take any part of the discussion as an investment recommendation without further study.
